Volunteers Needed for Middlesex Hospital Hospice, Palliative Care

At Middlesex Hospice and Palliative Care, volunteers are an integral part of the interdisciplinary team, reaching out to patients and families as they cope with the challenges of terminal illness. Volunteers can choose to work in homecare, on the Weiss Hospice Unit or in bereavement support after completing 40 hours of classes and a 12-hour mentorship.

Training runs from early February to mid-April 2016, and is held on four Saturdays and one evening. The program welcomes both male and female volunteers. Volunteers must be 18 years or older.

To begin the fall application process, contact Jaclyn Thurnauer, Hospice Volunteer Coordinator, at (860) 358-6955 or email
